My self-summary
Freshly-Austinite. Could use help with my transformation. Got any good tips that don't involve wearing a Stetson hat or scoffing at cool things of yester-year?

I am an open-minded, free-thinking lover of all things. My main interest is in reestablishing my faith in humanity-- perhaps a free dating website is the wrong forum for such a thing?

INTP. Playful. Affectionate. Casual in my interactions with others. Athletic. Thoughtful. Striving toward sophistication while remaining mostly unpretentious.

Gifted in some ways. Delinquent in others. I tend to exceed the expectations of other okcupidites upon first meeting rather than disappoint them. And I like it that way.

I am in need of compassion and companionship.
What I’m doing with my life
contributing to the greater good. connecting with those around me. etc.
I’m really good at
Smiling, crafting witty retorts that you certainly don't expect (and using the English language effectively in general), diving gratuitously during sports, being silly, expressing gratitude, analyzing unnecessary things, arguing a point for argument's sake, appreciating irony, riding bicycles, navigating in a strange land, whipping something up, becoming an exceptionally cuddly surface, making lists, losing said lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually people notice my hair first. Or maybe my teeth. Or my unusually muscular build. People also notice that they can't easily place me in their mental ethnicity-catalog.

Six things I could never do without
Endorphins, eye contact, spontaneous travel plans, words (both written and spoken), my iPod and/or excellent radio programs, and sunshine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Simplicity. My next meal. Communication in general. Beauty. Time.

my life as i know it. and my life as i would like to know it. and improving the congruency between these two things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying the moment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am somehow able to derive silly amounts of pleasure from flossing.

Also, I find Ayn Rand to be an insufferable bore.
You should message me if have an accent or speak another language (OR BOTH!!). If you satisfy this condition, I already have a crush on you. Further, if you speak Magyar and wouldn't mind helping me improve/sharpen my language skills, I would be eternally grateful. wanna go for a bike ride. Or you know where I can play some high-quality sand volleyball. think you can do more clapping-push-ups than I can. have good taste: in food, in music, in movies, but most importantly, in women.'re GGG too.
The two of us
